We can indeed seek to re-join, but we may well get a less favourable a deal on doing so.
And we would probably have to agree to take the Euro too, which may not be attractive, and which might see us having to follow any and all centralised economic policies, and having to join in any further bail-outs of failing Eurozone economies, neither of which may be good news for the UK economy at those points in time.

There has been absolutely no indication that we will be forced to join the Euro or suffer worse terms than we enjoy now if we rejoin using Article 49.We should stop this madness and rejoin a.s.a.p. when May and her clowns fail to achieve a good brexit deal.

Under the treaty of the functioning of the EU all new members have to adopt the euro. At present we have a negotiated opt out but that will cease on leaving. It is highly unlikely that a new opt out would be acceptable to EU

Martin Dawes: Can you explain precisely what is so wonderful for ordinary people about an institution favoured by the City, the banks, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Blair, Mandelson, Cameron, Osborne, the global corporations? They were the ones insisting we should vote Remain. Are you happy with your strange bedfellows? Do you really love the idea that the poster boy'European' Macron imposed labour 'reforms' (shorthand for worsening workers' conditions) by decree. Can you tell us why your love such an institution so much?

Quite apt and current I thought.

If we rejoin the EU there will be no opt-outs, rebate, keeping the £, rejecting further integration etc etc... we had a bloody good deal with the EU but the British were too arrogant to realise it.

We must build a kind of United States of Europe.”

We had a good deal with the organisation whose accounts have never passed audit. Is that something to hold on to? I suppose we should be like Greece and let them bleed us white. Anyway,IF brexit happens it won't mean a thing, May and all the other so called leaders are sold out to the globalists.

When we joined there were a few people who were angry about it, and it's taken 40 years of drip-drip to propaganda to parlay that into a small majority in the referendum. Given the number of people who are furious that we're leaving, even with the mainstream media propping up that decision, I give it 10 years max before we're rejoining - and this time, yes, it will be on "worse" terms, including the Euro. EU needs reform (as does our own political system), but we were too conceited to press for EU reform (except for market integration) and are too dim and servile to put our own house in order.
